Turning a few characters into a whole paragraph is the time-saving function of TextExpander 5. You can download it now via 9to5Toys Specials for $24.

Described by MacBreak as “the single best productivity tool for the Mac, right after Quicksilver”, TextExpander lets you compile a library of text snippets that you regularly have to type out. Once you’ve assigned each snippet with a trigger word — an abbreviation, for instance — the app will then automatically expand those few letters into the full text. This makes it much easier to fill in dates, forms, email signatures and tables, while version 5 can suggest snippets based on your usage patterns. The app can also look out for the (very rare!) typos you make most often, and fix them instantly.

The deal takes a huge 46% off the regular price of this big-name utility.
